*This is going to be a long post!*
Over the last little while, a lot of things have been happening out at Ryan's place . . .
Yes! A house is being built! Ever since purchasing his land three years ago, Ryan had planned to eventually build a house, and now it is actually happening! It has been really exciting to see the progress . . . from first being excavated, to having the footings poured, then the block put up, and now it is time to start on the floor.
This is one of the reasons why we have been going out to his place quite a bit recently as we all want to see the progress that is being made! Here are some photos from our times out at his land over the past month or so . . .
After the excavating had been finished. Ryan is explaining to us something about what will be happening next.
An explanation must go with this photo! Right before this was going to be taken, Ryan started having too much fun :) - thus the reason for the faces in the above photo! I'll refrain from posting the photo that was taken directly after this one. :) Eventually we did end up with a 'normal' one, though! . . .

And while the foundation/crawlspace was being built (someone else did it for him), Ryan had been working on his entrance gate and that is looking very nice so far . . .
It has been so wonderful to be able to see my brother's dreams coming to fruition and also to see how much he has learned, researched, planned and prepared for this season. I am continually amazed with how much he knows about all of this!
And now today the electric service should be going in, and the waterlines should be put in soon, too! These next months are definitely going to be exciting and busy!!
